I’ve been on a tool making kick lately and I took it to the next step and made my first hand plane. Not only did i make a plane, but I made my own iron as well from an old saw blade. The dimensions are 2.5”hx8”Lx2.75”W. I made it from poplar and walnut. Thanks for looking. Comments are appreciated and please subscribe to my YouTube Channel. Check out the video HERE.
